Middle school is an essential time to learn and practice social skills, including how to get along with others, talk about hard things, be an ally, and a good friend.This book provides supportive guidance and instruction to help kids establish or and maintain meaningful relationships and effective communication with friends, teachers, family members, and others in their communities. Talking the talk can be tricky, and every page provides easy, accessible scripts and guidance on the right thing to say in all kinds of situations, from how to be inclusive, listen, give advice, argue, stick up for yourself, and ask for help to how to turn down a date, express sympathy, deal with offensive comments, respond to bullying, and be trustworthy. Humorous, graphic-style illustrations play out familiar scenarios and  reinforce the friendly, non-judgmental tone to help kids develop the skills to express themselves clearly while showing empathy, care, and generosity towards others.

Why We Love It

Toys and activities that are explicitly intended to teach specific skills can still be fun! Pretend cash registers and money-exchange games strengthen counting and math skills while offering opportunities for imaginative play; activity books come in a variety of themes that allow children to explore a favorite topic while practicing the ABCs, handwriting or pen control; and Mad Libs and joke books are ideal for family bonding and laughter while stealthily teaching kids about parts of speech and the rhythms of language.
